Rhyme – “Winter is Cold” from Off the Library Shelf
Winter is cold [Hug yourself and shiver]
There is snow in the sky [Flutter fingers above your head]
The squirrel gathers nuts [Pretend to gather nuts]
And the wild geese fly [Flap arms]
The fluffy red fox [Cup hands over head to form ears]
Has his fur to keep warm [Stroke arms as if stroking fur]
The bear’s in her cave [Form a cave shape with your arms]
Sleeping all through the storm [Fold hands under cheek and pretend to sleep]

Activity
Bear in a Cave – I got the idea from Preschool Playbook, though ours weren’t quite as fancy.
